Starwood Hotels & Resorts, along with partners Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) and All Nippon Airways (ANA), recently hosted seven Australian travel consultants on an exciting famil to Rusutsu and Kiroro in Japan.
The group of lucky agents stayed at two of Starwood’s premium resorts in Japan, including The Westin Rusutsu Resort, Rusutsu and Sheraton Hokkaido Kiroro Resort, Kiroro, as well as dropping in at The Kiroro, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, Hokkaido to see the property which falls under Starwood’s newest brand umbrella.
As well as enjoying some well-earned rest and relaxation at the luxury Starwood properties, the famil participants experienced a range of winter activities including skiing, tubing, snowmobiling and snow-shoeing, gaining a firsthand insight into Japan’s diverse ski and winter sport offerings.
The group flew over to Japan on board ANA, which launched its Sydney to Tokyo route in December 2015, and offers connections to over 40 destinations across Japan.
